CVE-2016-4451: Privilege escalation through Organization and Locations API

When accessing Foreman as a user limited to specific organization, if users 
know other organization id and have unlimited filters they can access/modify 
other organization data. They just have to set the id as API parameter.

Mitigation: make sure you have filters restricted to organizations or locations 
when you limit user by assigning him particular organization or location.

Affects Foreman 1.7 and higher

Patch available at
Fix released in Foreman 1.11.3 (to be released)
